Industrial firefighting is a job for specialists
Industrial incidents are different from regular fires. As specialists using state-of-the-art equipment, we can respond quickly and with high capacity. Our firefighting capacity is 4 to 5 times larger than that of regular firefighters. Within a maximum of 6 minutes after an incident has been reported, Sitech Fire Brigade is on site and can start the response. As soon as the incident is under control, we see to it that the plant is operational again in the shortest possible time. Together with our colleagues from Sitech Maintenance, we replace damaged installations to get the production up and running again. Teamwork is dreamwork.
High-end hazmat team prevents spread of hazardous substances
At Chemelot, various chemical substances are processed, produced and transported. For incidents involving the risk of a hazardous substance being released, our high-end hazmat team comes into action. Our employees have been trained and are certified to work according to specific procedures and with special equipment. We carry out measurements and sampling in a potentially hazardous environment and can thus quickly identify and detect the identity and spread of the chemical substance, and respond to it.
